The solution to TomTom freezing problems is to throw these pieces of foreign made junk in the trash. My 130 never worked since it was new because it is a cheap bottom feeder GPS full of recycled Chinese components. The trash can is the solution.

You can try a hard reset.
By removing the sd card and using i paper clip pushing it into the reset hole on the underside of the unit, push and hold for 15 seconds, Then switch device back on and slot your sd card back in
If you have an SD card in try removing that before you power up.
You may also want to try the hard reset.
Paper clip in the tiny hole by the card slot.
Push it in firmly whilst the unit is powered up (not too hard) for about 3 seconds then release
You may have to power down and then up again and even hold down the power button a little longer the first time you do this
The SD card may also need formatting properly.
This means it is not reading the SD card and that it needs to be re-formatted.
This is best done in a card reader and not the tomtom itself.
Right click on it and select format select FAT32 as the files system
Now connect the tomtom but don't let tomtom home run. exit TTH if need be.
You now ned to select your tom tom which will also show as a drive.
In windows explorer select tools then folder options. Click view and tick the box for "show hidden files and folders" It may warn you but you can ignore it.
Then just copy ALL the files from the tom tom to your sd card
DO NOT USE CUT AND PASTE !
Once all the files are on switch off the tom tom and insert the sd card
Please connect your tom tom to the power adapter first.Get a paper clip and press the reset button under the SD card slot of your tom tom.Reset button is a very small small hole at the back near the sd card slot.Keep pressing the reset button for 2mins and also press the power button till the light comes on.
This should fix the issue.Let me know if you need any more help.
If you have TomTom that have the slot for SD card, then it should accepted the SD card. The instruction for how to use the SD card is simple, but it is hidden in the TomTom Home, that's why it's difficult to find it. Below are the instruction how to use the SD card.
1. Format the SD card (FAT32) and do not stick the SD in the slot yet
2. Run Backup (connect TomTom device to computer)
3. Disconnect TomTom from computer and turn off
4. Slide the SD into the slot and connect TomTom back to computer (choose "yes")
5. In the TomTom Home menu, Choosen Backup & Restore >>> and choosen Restore
TomTom Home will add all applications to the SD card. So the internal memory still have the applications and the SD card also had the same applications. Everytime you slide the card in, TomTom will automatic detect and use it as its primary storage, if it not detect, you can go to the device menu and pick the device to connect to.
Whenver you take the SD card out, then TomTom will use its internal memory.
The way the TomTom One works (unfortunately) is that it reads either from the SD slot of from internal memory, but not both. So you can't have the SD act as supplemental memory. I had the same problem and was pretty peeved about it. You would have to spring for a more expensive model to get this feature :S
